Chapel on the Hill - there was an ongoing wedding on that date and have observed that the chapel is quite small, the guests were overflowing and some guests were just even waiting outside... I said No-no.
There's only 1 church left which is Calaruega... I was kind of frustrated already driving to this last church, it was a rough road and when we parked outside (parking fee: P30), we were not allowed to use the stairs for it was reserved to the wedding guests. So we needed to go back to the car and drive farther down because we need to walk all the way up before reaching the church itself. Entrance fee: P30. Though we were both exhausted and tired, we still found our strength to get out of the car and started the journey of walking since we were already there (isang paguran na lang).
I didn't expect that Calaruega will capture my heart when we started walking on its breezy garden, I already loved the place but didn't tell boyfie yet. When we reached the church, there were some men arranging flowers for the next wedding and we asked if we can go inside, they let us pass thru and true enough, I felt the solemnity of the place and started praying to God. I was surprised when my boyfie said: "this is it". He loved the place too and we both agreed that this is where we want to exchange our vows, vows that will bind us together, forever in this lifetime. Parang nawala pagod namin bigla...
We wanted to reserve the church but the office is only up to 5pm. We need to go back soon to secure the date for our wedding, I really hope that our chosen date is still available. Next step: checkout places for the reception, this will surely be an exhausting activity again. May God give us again the patience to find the best place for our wedding.
